    I just used an original Holden cross member with mine, when it was 4L65 I just had to redrill the trans bolt holes, with the glide it needed a simple spacer block.  My CRS kit had a cross member like the one you have Cav, I thought it looked way too flimsy and I didn’t like way they had just tacked on that extension like that.  Especially with the smashing yours would get Ian, its just waiting to break imo.  This is mine not the greatest pic showing it but hopefully you can see it.  Nice and simple, and factory looking.

    Don’t stress boys. The trans mount is rock solid. She won’t be moving anywhere.

    Good all my bolts today. Engine mounts are on and everything is double checked and ready to roll tomorrow.  :yahoo:

    My front end from CRS didn’t come with all the bolts either. So annoying because I think the 2 main bolts are imperial.

    the kit was 2nd hand. It had some bolts, but not all. Also cause I brought the car as a roller it was missing bits and pieces. Quick trip to the wreckers and $10 later I can’t complain. Got a good mate of mine coming past to help me ease it in.

     

    Pray at for clearance.

    Big Day

    I’ll let the photos do the talking.

    Winged the sump clearance

    Missing 2 bolts on the glide

    Bonnet looks like it will all fit under the group a scoop. The header had absolutely 0 chance of fitting. Back to the drawing board.

    Curious would the lsa clear but the bonnet reinforcement in place? How much more clearance could you get from running a different top plate

    It should JUST clear my scoop. But I’m not too sure. You can run a CTSV blower hat and save room of you can even convert to the ls9 blower hat for even more clearance. But it’s big Coin.

     

    Im more concerned about the TB then the blower

    The CTS-V Lid looks like it’ll save heaps of room, it’s pretty much the LSA Lid turned around 180 so the Big lumpy bit is at the back..

    Are you able to flip the TB, I had to do that in the Tonner as the TB Motor was rubbing the Bonnet Pad.

    Looks bloody awesome in there.  ^ I agree with IJ, maybe try rotating the tb 180, worse case an adapter plate and angle it down slightly?  You’re staying fbw throttle though, didn’t I read somewhere you wanted to go back to cable?    I have to say I think that trans cross member is just bloody awful, yes I know it works but fark it got hit by the ugly stick, and from an engineering point of view its just puss.  I’ve got to know you over the last couple of years so I know me saying that will mean you will stick with it though ;-)    Sump, exhaust, yes well I don’t want to say I told you so but….
